Nutritional Science (NTR)

Overview

The B.S. program in Nutrition is designed to provide students with knowledge and skills for a career in nutrition, food science, food service management, public health or for further study in a graduate program such as ACEND-accredited dietetics. Nutrition students can pursue a 37 credit Standard major, a comprehensive emphasis in Community Nutrition, or a comprehensive emphasis in Pre-Dietetics. The Standard major provides flexibility for students who wish to double major. The Community Nutrition emphasis provides a solid grounding in the sciences and would be appropriate for students interested in a variety of nutrition-related professions or graduate programs such as public health. The Pre-Dietetics emphasis provides necessary prerequisite coursework for students wishing to enter an ACEND-accredited graduate program in dietetics. The Nutritional Science minor is suitable for students who have requisite science coursework to complete nutrition coursework.
